Reim in 5V5 Top

Personally , Reim is just balanced in 5 v 5. There will be more ranged heroes than melee heroes so this is an disadvantage . But more players proved that Reim's aoe abilities are much more powerful. Who doesn't want to see a 5 man stun? Jungle clearing speed is good enough, and make sure to start at the crystal treant side.

The build should be the same.
Now only casual is available so players are not bothering about captains or synergies or anything else so I shall wait.

PREVIOUS PATCHES AND NOTES Top

From 2.9 to now ( 2.12) , Reim was at the strongest at 2.9 and weakest at 2.10

At 2.10 , SEMC gave Reim more tankiness , at the cost of his damage .
In 2.11 , SEMC realised that Reim was nerfed too hard , so they increased the strength of ur fortified health
In 2.12 Semc buffed Reim again ,but stun of ult was reduced ( I don't know why , probably because of 5 v5}

IF U JUST WANT TO KNOW IMPORTANT TIPS AND TRICKS AND DONT BOTHER ABOUT MATCHUPS AND SYNERGIES , READ THIS Top

Tips and Tricks of Reim





1. Ult has about 1 second of delay , use it immediately after root to guarantee a kill.

2. Autoattack monsters alternately before u let out a winter spire.

3. Root prevents all forms of mobility , so Reim actually counter some mobile heroes

4. should not be used for farming , high cd and energy cost.

5. Autoattack a person if u are close enough before a , as it deal extra dmg to chilled targets

6. The and combo can be used in two ways. If winter spire damages the enemy at its max range , u need to walk towards the enemy a bit closer before root. If u want to escape , root can be also used while walking away.

7. Don't underestimate your damage and durability ! You most likely can survive and even kill an enemy in a 1 v2 . This usually can only happen when the jungler and captain is a melee. If u cant escape, then don't! , coz when your fortified health runs out , its much easier to kill you.

8. U received 50% less damage with fortified hp , which means , anyone with lifesteal item or breaking point is going to be weak against you.

Why to main reim? Top

Reim is a juggernaut , immobile , tanky and threatening if he gets very close to his enemies. He is great for low to mid-high tier climbing as most players find it hard to counter him .



Pros

1. extremely durable
2. hard cc
3. Outdamage lots of junglers
4. fast farming
5. good in all stages of the game
6. works well with almost any captains and carries
7. great pushing power

Cons
1. Immobile
2. easily kited
3. can be killed easily without fortified health
4. abilities can be dodged easily

Abilities of Reim and sequence Top

Heroic Perk


This is the ability that makes Reim extremely durable . It also slows the enemy, dealing damage and applying the chill effect. When close enough to an enemy , always AA before u use ,as deals bonus damage to a chilled enemy.

A ability


Your main damage dealing tool. Max it no matter what and enjoy the 8 Range , since u can damage snipers without them damaging you (lol)

B ability


Root enemy that are chilled . Do not use this skill to farm. This skill is for rooting enemy and not for damage purposes. Overdriving it is better than ult since its cooldown is reduced to 7 seconds.

Ultimate

Great against heroes that have abilities that ' root ' them in place. For instance , ult of and . U should not miss the stun as it can cancel their abilty. This ability has a bit of delay , so use it immediately after u use your root.

Don't max your ultimate , I know it gives a bit more damage but by having a more frequent root can allow winter spires to land more easily . Besides , that stun and slow is quite useless as its so predictable so people can spam their blocks or just dash away. Having more roots is better .

Early Game Top

In my opinion , is stronger than most heroes in the early game. Starting at the bottom camp , proceed to check whether u can steal the bottom camp of the enemy side. Depending on the enemy , decide whether u can kill the elder treant . If they have a stun like , do not attack yet as enemies can deal lots of damage when u lose your fortified health. U must also make sure that u hit lv 2 before fighting the enemy.

Farming

Reim can solo jungle thanks to his perk and high damage of his a skill . If u are killing a double camp , hit the monsters alternately. NEVER USE to farm . It takes up a lot of energy and has a high cd.

Ganking

Fortunately , ganking is easy for thanks to his root and slow. If u are not close enough , use your a skill and root immediately then continue to land another 2 AA. If u are close enough , AA before u use your a skill then root . u can start ganking at lv 3 and when the enemy jungler is not in the lane.


Invading

can kill monsters easily but cannot escape easily. Ensure that u have enough energy and boots is ready before u invade . If u do get caught , use boots at the best time , eg. after uses her stun. Another way to escape is to use to chill the enemy then use to root the enemy while walking away from them . If there is no chance of escaping , its best to continue damaging your enemy because u can last for at least 20 seconds before u die.

Mid Game Top

u should get eve of harvest by now . Buy travel boots if u have problem chasing fleeing enemies. Buy shield or armor depending on the enemy. Buy heavy prism if u have enough gold then proceed to buy dragon's eye . Personally , if u are going for aegis , buying shield over reflex block is better but it still depends on the enemy.

Late game Top

The enemy's carry will most likely to have shield , if they don't , u can simply nuke them using all your abilities . U must buy journey boots and buy broken myth or shatterglass. Don't forget to buy crystal infusion before a crucial teamfight. If u find it hard to eliminate their carry , focus on protecting yours . Your objective killing power is still strong .

Synergy ( Carries) Top

Carries



Synergy level : High

This combination allows u to eliminate enemies that get too close to your carry . Both of u are bad at chasing enemies so don't do so. To prompt the enemies to kill you , put pressure on the turrets as both u have high pushing potential .



Synergy level : High

Your ult with his can initate a teamfight well.



Synergy level : High

Your stun can ensure that Baron's ult hit the enemies . Always fight in the front line .



Not such great partners but he can finish off fleeing enemies


Synergy level : Low

I don't like him a lot. He has no great abilities for you to land your ult or winter spire . And his low attack range means he has to stay close to enemies to damage them.

Synergy ( Captain) Top


Synergy level : high

Gives u mobility and can follow up with u well . His ult is great for you


Synergy level : high

Her stun is good for your winter spire ability . Don't use root if the second burst of winter spire is successfully dealt to the enemy .


Synergy level : medium high

its hard to follow up when she uses her a ability . But her b ability is useful


Synergy level : Medium

Hard to follow up and since u don't have high attack speed , his b skill is not as effective


Synergy level : Medium

You are not a sneaky hero . But double root is good .



Synergy level : Medium

U can miss your abilities sometimes because of his knockback


synergy level : Medium

Your damage does not come mainly from your autoattack

Detailed matchups intro Top

I will be writing down why does reim counter the hero or the hero counter reim. Items will be recommended . And most importantly , how to counter the hero.

Easy matchups Top



Alpha

The easiest jungler to counter as reim. Her burst is ineffective as it is easy to gain fortified health from her. Root prevent her from using ,her main form of mobility . Furthermore your winter spire really hurts when she's in her rebooting form , and there's no reason to miss it.

1. Root her before she uses prime detective
2. Buy shield instead of reflex block . U don't have to upgrade it to aegis until very late of the game

Adagio

He has no mobility so u can easily catch him. When he is using his ult immediately use ult to cancel it. He may even cancel it himself by running away.

Saw

Easiest carry to counter . Its impossible for u not to land your . Ult immediately when he uses B , although it wont cancel his spin up , it provides times for u to walk up to him and deal **** tons of damage . Although its easy , I always buy atlas against him. ALL saw players will buy shield so make sure u buy broken myth.

Lyra

Another easy captain . U have no dashes , her B is quite ineffective . Her ult , when used in an offensive way , can sometimes bring enemy carry to awkward position ( like in front of u ) .

Easy - medium matchups Top

These matchups are still easy but I write it as easy - medium because they can counter u at some point of the game or when getting a item.




THE SLIGHT MOBILE BUT LESS DMG AND TANKINESS WARRIORS


He cant duel you . Root prevents him from using after burn . After burn can sometimes bring u closer to the carry so u can make him ****.


Very common matchup. Buy atlas and there should be no problem duelling her. Again , root prevents jumping


She has shield or armor pierce but it doesn't affect fortified health . Her stun can at times quite dangerous so buy reflex block


u would be probably thinking , Koshka has a **** ton of mobility but why doesn't she counter reim?
U see she need to get close to u to deal damage . She would be happy to continue damaging you , until she start regretting about overestimating her damage and run away . if she does that , don't bother , jungle farms are more worth it.


This guy has no mobility , but the issue is his long range poke , especially in late game . In most situation before a teamfight u would not have fortified health so his A can probably take like one fifth of your health away . I suggest buying shield and staying in bush to engage enemies.


1. Buy reflex block


1. Do not waste root or stun on him because it's useless
2. Buy reflex block


There are times that lance will miss his A and when that happens just fk him up.


Your aoe abilities destroy his puny wolfs . Root prevents leaping


He actually has better sustain . Always buy shield against him .


Just get lots of fortified health when u are in his gauntlet .


1. Has no cc , buy shield instead of block
2. Root him to prevent dashing

Medium matchups Top

U need to outplay to win these matchups . U can duel them but u may not win the game


Extremely easy in early game . Becomes harder and harder as the game goes on . When building cp , that low cd , high dmg and decent range B skill is quite annoying . All disables are block during
1. Ult only after he uses his
2. Buy shield if going cp , armor if going wp
3. Go very agrresive during early game . Steal his treant and fight him . You don't even need to back off if his captain comes . Its really easy in early game.
4. Most wp bf goes for breaking point but he cant stack it on you easily but watch out for that execute as it is based on percentage of your health



1. Always buy defense depending on his build

2. Use on him immediately after he uses B to engage

Annoying kite and slow buy defense depending on his build . Don't enagage when he is spinning his gun


Her trampoline range is about the same as your ult , sooo take advantage of that . Munions are easily killed by your aoe . Root prevents jumping


All of her abilities seemed to counter you .
1. U must get fortified health before confronting her because her + can be deadly.
2. To bait her out , constantly aa her until she felt so threatened as your carry targets her. Root her after 0.5 s of her


She can walk away far enough after she stun you . Her ult can be annoying as u are a mage.
1. Buy reflex block to block ult
2. Don't bother chasing her after she stun you and walk away

Medium- Hard matchups Top

These usually requires help from your teammates to win them . I see them as relatively weak at some point of the game but they counters you hard at some stages of the game



An ability that can dodge all negative effects , burst damage and insane mobility is a nightmare for .
1. You can win him only in Lv 1 , it gets tougher as the game goes on. Invade his jg and he cant do anything about it since has a relatively high cooldown and can only be used on one enemy. At lv 2 and above , u just need some scout traps to place around ur jg to make sure he doesn't steal your farm.

2. If u are close enough to him , u can root and reveal him after he goes stealth
3. Always buy defense
4. Ask your captain to buy contraption


Similar to , it gets tougher as the game goes on.
1. Rush boots to chase him . After applying one aa , immediately root and winter spire.
2. Buy defense for this only about mid game


Her spear really counters you. Long range and burst dmg.
1. Root when shes using her dash
2. Her movement speed is slower than u . Buy boots and it should be no problem catching her


Dangerous ult if u don't have fortified health
1. Flares
2. U must constantly aa her if u are close enough as it prevents her from going stealth


Extremely common matchup.
1. U have stronger early game. When u see him just throw a spire and walk away. The second burst will hit him as he moves towards you . U must learn the >>> walk away combo. U can deal decent damage before u confront him but I would prefer fighting with my captain
2. Buy atlas
3. In mid game , its better to take all the weakness stacks and just try to tank . use your root , stun slow to protect him from your carry .When he cant chases your carry , he wil focus u instead , and that's when your carry can **** him up. U don't have to deal dmg, and u will last very long since krul doesn't deal that much dmg anyway.


Insane kiting with his A ability
1. Still buy shield , recommend your captain to buy crucible
2. Rush boots

YOUR HARDEST MATCHUP Top



This is the hardest matchup for Reim. She can kite u for days, zone u , stun , and deal tons of dmg while u chase her with no fortified health.

1. NEVER EVER DUEL HER ALONE unless you are very ahead
2. Ult after she uses
3.Think of ways to approach her safely . Don't face her forward barrage .
4. Journey boots is essential
5. Thumbs up to , in draft pick
